Two years ago Ram introduced new truck to the market which has taken one small piece of the market share held by Ford. We guess that people at Ford were furious and thus they immediately decided to take extra mile and get back on track. When experts put Ram 3500 with Ford F-450 side by side it was obvious that Ram 3500 has much better towing capacity, one of the most characteristics when it comes to trucks in this class. Ford was known as the leader in terms of towing capacity but after 2016 Ram 3500 debut, things have been changed. As a result of this situation engineers put a lot of effort to create more powerful Ford F-450.
Therefore, they created a vehicle which is known as 2015 Ford F-450 Platinum. Towing capacity was in focus several things were neglected, such as fuel consumption, but the main goal was to create a truck which will have more than 30,000lbs. Previous models didn’t exceed 24,000lbs hence this was the big step for Ford and it took a lot of time to come up with a perfect design. Of course, new truck comes with new changes in the outlook and a different engine.
2015 Ford F-450 Platinum ENGINE HORSEPOWER
Enhanced towing capacity requires engine that has more horses, thus the 6.7 liter Power Stroke was the perfect choice. This engine is used in all Super Duty vehicles manufactured this year. In order to get additional power the 6.7l comes with turbocharger. Horsepower and torque figures haven’t been published yet, but there are some rumors they will be approximately 425 horsepower and 875 lb-ft of torque. It won’t be too much better than Ram but it will have more towing capacity. 2015 Ford F-450 Platinum comes with six-speed TorqShift transmission system, something that hasn’t been changed for a while. New F-450 was tested in California at the NASA center, where it was towing the space shuttle without any problem. So far, this has been the most powerful truck manufactured by Ford and probably the most powerful pickup truck ever to hit the US roads.

In general, weight will be reduced but we are not certain how much. 2015 Ford F-450 Platinum won’t be cheap and one of the reasons is interior which is equipped with high-quality materials.
